Blogs Editor

Peter comes from a background in the humanities. Before earning a graduate degree in psychology, he studied English, philosophy, and art.

Now working on his PhD in Counseling Psychology, his recent research has focused on conflicts of interest in the psychopharmaceutical research literature, the use of antipsychotic medications in the treatment of depression, and the general philosophical and sociopolitical implications of psychiatric taxonomy in diagnosis and treatment. He brings a particularly critical eye to the unquestioned assumptions of the psychological establishment.
